Coming of Age
This is a collection of personal stories – written and voiced by young Chicagoans – about what it means to grow up. They were produced with writer Hillary Frank, author and illustrator of “Better Than Running At Night” and other books; she’s also the producer of many excellent radio stories. This collection was broadcast as part of the Chicago Public Radio series, “Chicago Matters: Our Next Generation,” funded by The Chicago Community Trust. They also aired nationally on several programs, including NPR’s “All Things Considered,” “Day to Day,” and American Public Media’s “Weekend America.” “Coming of Age” won several honors, including a Third Coast International Audio Festival award and a Clarion.
